I am a bit confused.

The Chinese character above 壁 means "wall" and is read "kabe". I do not think that it has anything to do with an emoticon.

The last three characters チラッ are katanata syllables which read "chira' " and mean "very briefly", "hardly" or "just a little".

In between, you have the cyrillic letter д for "d".

yes that is why i am so confused! I was speaking to my penpal when they wrote this down and left, I did a search and have seen it on a few emoticon websites but with no explanation

I will ask them when they return, but curiosity just got to me first :D

If that's what it means, then it's probably similar to the emoticon we have of someone bashing their head against the wall. ](*,)

Zoom out a bit, and you'll see an angry anime-style guy punching with his right fist and raising his left fist. :)

Got it!

It a face hiding behind a wall, of which you see only the nose and the left eye. You are just seeing a glimpse of it, hence "chira' " = "[see you/see me] just a little, briefly."

Sometimes the chinese characters in those emoticons are not supposed to be translated, they're just good at "painting" the emoticon with.

I asked the person who sent me that emoticon, this is what it means
